Add to Goodreads

Author of the Mortal Enchantment Series, Stacey O'Neale, is back spinning a new and intriguing story with Under His Skin. Alien Encounters have never sounded so good.

I love a paranormal romance, but the idea of romance with aliens and humans is a new one for me. The summary piqued my interest as I love any kind of stories that have to do with baking or cooking as a profession. When I noticed the hero was an alien, I was a tad worried. Then I realized it was a Stacey O'Neale story and knew I needed to give it a chance.

First off, I love Annabelle. She's as sweet and charming as the delicious treats she whips up in her bakery aptly called Yummy. It is the scent of her and her creations that brought Kaden to her bakery in the first place. The sweet smile, easy conversation, and tastebud orgasming pastries that kept Kaden coming back. They become best friends over a years time, but Annabelle has no idea Kaden is an alien from a distant planet.

Things begin to change for Kaden when his alien heart begins to beat in his human body for the first time. It is a signal that he has found his mate in human Annabelle. From there things flip flop a bit as Kaden struggles with how to protect this human from harm. Not only is Kaden sexy in his human form, but the way O'Neale portrays him feeling certain emotions for the very first time is a thrilling and almost erotic experience. I had to wave my hand in front of me more than a few times to cool myself off. O'Neale pumps up the excitement as a new alien threat comes to earth in search of Kaden and his two brothers, Cam and Hayden.

Under His Skin will make you hot under your skin and give you a tantalizing taste of what life would be like loving an alien.

Thanks so much to Stacey O'Neale and Entangled Publishing for gifting me with a copy of the newest release from the Covet Imprint, Under His Skin, in exchange for an honest review. I can't wait to sink my teeth into the next Alien Encounters novel.
